smoked at low temps?

Question hopefully someone can answer. How low of temperatures can you safety smoke ribs at?... I was thinking of smoking baby backs at a temperature of 160 degrees for 3-4 hours then bumping up to 190 for 4-5 hours... Has anyone ever done it or would it be safe?

I don't understand why you would want to do that. The finish IT for ribs is 195-205.


If your smoker is only 190 they will never get fully coked.


If you want to slow cook them try smoking them at 210, until done.

Technically...Yes. Intact Ribs, no injection, with a salt/sugar Rub can be smoked at temps between 160 and 200°F but it would take much more than 6 hours to get tender and the surface of the meat would look Steamed, a dull gray with no hint of Bark or browning. Short of a sear on a hot grill, more time and fuel, they would be relatively tasteless and unappealing. Not something anyone would look at and recognize as great BBQ'd Ribs...JJ
